Oklahoma Ag Groups Thank Congressmen for Their Work on Farm Bill

Oklahoma Ag Groups Thank Congressmen for Their Work on Farm Bill
A collection of Oklahoma agricultural leaders and groups issued the following statement after the House of Representatives voted down the 2013 farm bill:

June 25, 2013

Oklahoma agriculture would like to thank U.S. House of Representatives Agriculture Committee
Chairman Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Collin Peterson for their efforts in crafting and presenting
H.R. 1947, The Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act of 2013. We would also
like to thank Oklahoma Representatives Tom Cole, James Lankford and Markwayne Mullin for their
support of the FARRM Act.

The leadership and passion of Chairman Lucas were exemplary, and the work of this group of leaders to
support a key Oklahoma economic driver was outstanding. While we are disappointed in the outcome,
we are encouraged by such strong representation from our Oklahoma Representatives.

We also want to convey our thanks to Chairman Lucas's Agriculture Committee staff for their superior
work. Without them, H.R. 1947 would not have made it to a floor vote. We are proud of their dedicated
efforts on our behalf.
